How an Interdisciplinary Approach to Medicine is Best for Patients, With Dr. Michael Krahe, ACSDD Sleep Academy, Scottsdale, AZ and Darien, IL
As an orchestra has dozens of individual instruments playing different sounds, when those sounds are all put together, you get totally different sounds as a result. Dr. Michael Krahe, Founder and Director of the ACSDD, the Academy of Clinical Sleep Disciplines Disorders, in Scottsdale, Arizona, says that the interdisciplinary model of medicine is similar to an orchestra.
By taking all of the different pieces that have value in and of themselves and being able to bring it together in a presentation to the patient, so the patient has a full knowledge of information, they are able to make the best decision possible and probably weren't able to do that before, says Dr. Krahe. This also brings power and savings to our healthcare system, he notes.
"Bring it all together, find the best solution, deliver the care," Dr. Krahe says.
